Coyne 2020PGY2 - Mychaela Coyne, PhD

Medical Physics, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana, 2020

Hometown: Coeur d'Alene, ID
Undergraduate: University of Florida
Graduate: Purdue University 


Mychaela Coyne received her Ph.D. in Medical Physics from Purdue University –West Lafayette, IN. Her research focused on developing a compact In Vivo Neutron Activation Analysis (IVNAA) system for the measurement of sodium in bone and soft tissue, under the guidance of Dr. Linda H. Nie. After designing and optimizing the system in MCNP, the assembly was constructed, calibrated and then validated with animal studies. The use of the system in nutrition studies is expected to provide insight into the relationship between dietary sodium intake and retention in the body, including the risk of diseases like osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease. Mychaela started her Medical Physics residency at the University of Colorado – Denver in July 2020.

What do you like to do outside of work?

I have been hiking every weekend since I moved here and love the variety of mountains and trails nearby. I also enjoy cooking, especially Italian recipes I learned studying abroad.
